Capitalizing on the ways glass can be arranged in and flows from a crucible, everyone in this innovative class will learn to create reproducible decorative cane and Murrine using the Vitrigraph Kiln. These elements will then, immediately, be used to explore the dropout method of slumping glass. You will learn the basics of using the Vitrigraph kiln and will create at least two finished, medium, dropout vessels during class.

From circles to ovals and  triads, a variety of dropout forms will be explored. The only prerequisite is the ability to confidently cut sheet glass and a willingness to be challenged. All materials and supplies are included.  All skill levels are welcome.
